Colour key – Venn Pedro
Microsoft <3’s Linux
- Microsoft made their nginx GUI slightly less worse.
- Ya know where the ends up, right?
- Oh yes you do, just don’t want to admit it.
- 18% reduction in kernel size.
- NAPI and Receive Segment Coalescing
- latest Hyper-V device drivers
- Any Ubuntu 16.04 LTS image brought up from the Azure portal after September 21st will be running on this Azure tailored Ubuntu kernel.
- A few free courses and an easy transition for people looking to get the RHCE or RHCSA.
- Fundamentals of Red Hat Enterprise Linux will soon be available through edX.
- No previous Linux administration experience is required.
- Makes me wonder how badly (not if) I would bomb a 2017 RHCE exam.
Red has you covered
- Basically, do your homework when it comes to licensing software.
- Which you should be doing from the start.
- First offered in 2002 but now with more patent-sauce.
- 99 percent of FOSS software should be covered by the Promise.
- Does not cover hardware patents.
- Project needs to fall under one of the listed licences listed @ the OSI or the FSF.
My first Fedora 26
- No more 32bit iso.
- So long as they keep the 32bit packages for the stragglers, I have no issue with that.
- And I am one of those people with a 32bit system.
- Though, from the look of things, I’m just waiting on the 18.04 LTS for the Thinkpad to get its ultimate setup.
- People, you need to let go of you 32-bit retro computing machines.
- First version to include Canvas (Their attempt at a openSUSE Build Service)
- At least it ships with a proper DM.
- We should also mention the Ubuntu is dropping 32-bit builds of Ubuntu 17.10 desktop entirely.
The problem with releases
- People, you need to learn to put something (even a link to a changelog) in announcements.
- They did put a link to phabricator which shows only the open issues, since the done table is empty.
- It really does look like they’ve done nothing and are just claiming to have done.
- At least they are supporting Flatpack so you have no excuse to not give it a try.
Pedro reviews a thing
- This is going to sound like an excuse, but it’s the only reason I have.
- I was very disappointed by this laptop and it transpired to the video.
- I do apologise and I will do my damnedest to make sure the next video, coming soon, will not be as awful.
- Still, the written review I find is very much on point but then again, I wrote it.
- And Jordan fixed my awful grammar.
- Remember kids, blindly heap praise on anything with a penguin sticker.
- Because if you don’t you’re “hurting the Linux community”
- Does anyone want to see the full 10min long video review?
Quantum of Foxes
- It’s so fast you almost feel like you’re running chromium.
- There is mention of better high-DPI support on windows but nothing on Linux.
- That’s because there is none on Linux, it’s still rubbish.
- Still no love for google Hangouts.
- You can download the beta right now and have a go.
Cloudflare introduces DDoS B Gone
- It’s even available for the free plan.
- Quantum takes advantage of multiple CPU cores.
- Rocking the Photon interface.
Slice of Pi
Pew pew Pi
- DIY Entrapment props?
- Still won’t help you get either Catherine Zeta-Jones or Sean Connery into your place, unfortunately.
